I prefer the Laguvulin to the Laphroig but that's me. Sounds as if you have a very difficult decision. Perhaps I can help you. How about if I come over and act as a taster to assure that you pick the right dram to celebrate the new year. Of course it may take me more than one glass to make the correct decision......

How soon can you be here?

I was stationed in Scotland for 3 1/2 years from 84-88 and at one point had about 170 different malts in my closet. Some were gems, some were worse than leftover haggis squeezings. Loch Dhu (Loch Doo doo) was one of my favorite horrible whiskys.

Still have a pretty good selection of stuff left. Lots of Springbanks, a nice 61 Mortlach (birth year), Longrow, Glen Rothes, Dailuane, Rosebank, Balvenie Traditional, Brora, Aberlour a'bunadh (Batch #6), a few Bowmores, 68 Tomatin, Caol Ila, Ben Rinnes, Port Ellen, Dallas Dhu, Glenfarclas, 1874 Replica Macallan, Glen Morangie (Sherrywood and Port wood), Highland Park and of course, the peat monsters - Ardbeg, Lagavulin and Laphroaig.

Tossing back malt whisky while streaming the Dead circa '71????

It doesn't get any better than that unless it involves twin redheads, a 12 x 12 tarp and a couple of quarts of massage oil.

Wait, that was back in 82.................
